The Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF707RR-HX019W was against the competition
Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF707RR-HX019W is currently shown at Upgrade in Darty and in Fnak. It is ranked as one of the only companies in its class to benefit from such a modern processor (Rembrandt) with such a powerful graphics card and works under Windows 11.
If the Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF707RR-HX019W doesn’t meet all of your criteria, in our gaming laptop guide you’ll find other gaming configurations on a similar budget. For the same budget, choose the model that has the most powerful graphics card, and it will have the greatest impact on performance.
Chassis, Connectors, and Display Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF707RR-HX019W
Rugged as MIL-STD-810H compliance, this multimedia laptop features a gamer look in a Jaeger taupe design with angular stripes and patterns on the cover.
Rechargeable to 50% in 30 minutes thanks to fast charging technology, cooling is ensured by 2 Arc Flow fans (84 blades), 5 heat pipes and 4 vents.
The connectivity built into this gaming laptop is good, including no less than 2 USB-C (compared to 1 usually max), Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote communication and connection, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports or even two USB ports (USB 2.0 compatible) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if Connect USB 3.0 devices.
A backlight solution is of course installed on the Chiclette keyboard, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in the dark. The keys that players use are distinguished mainly by color.
In order to always seduce gamers, the screen is decorated with a frequency of 144Hz which enhances the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz. In addition, it has large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to its IPS technology. However, its colorimetry is average, lower than that of high-end IPS panels. Defined in Full HD resolution and 16:9 format, the screen is also very suitable for viewing high definition content such as videos. In addition, since it is anti-reflective, the screen provides better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors) while being more comfortable for the eyes when used for extended periods.
The performance and autonomy of the Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF707RR-HX019W
The Asus TUF Gaming A17 TUF707RR-HX019W is aimed at those who want a versatile 17-inch laptop that performs well for gaming and creativity.
It is capable of running modern games with a good level of detail as it includes GeForce RTX 3070 ray tracing, a dedicated high-quality NVIDIA Ampere graphics card.
In addition to gamers, the GeForce RTX 3070 will also be of interest to creators because it speeds up multimedia processing in the framework of programs that use GPU computing power, such as Adobe Premiere / Photoshop or Sony Vegas.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3070 is automatically and in real time activated / deactivated by NVIDIA Optimus technology depending on the tasks being performed.
Optimus Radeon 680M is preferred as much as possible, a graphics solution built into the processor but more modest because its lower power consumption enhances autonomy.
In that regard, while waiting for more full tests, expect about 9 hours of battery operation in light use.
The Radeon 680M is housed inside a Ryzen 7 6800H processor, AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) which, along with 16GB of RAM, delivers comprehensive power capable of satisfying demanding users.
This core supports the GeForce RTX 3070 well in gaming, and the designs will appreciate that it ensures much faster processing than Quad / Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4. We particularly feel the difference in areas that take up CPU and RAM resources that take advantage of multi-cores, such as video editing, 3D rendering, or photo editing.
It is clear that SSD storage enhances its daily responsiveness and fluidity compared to a simple hard disk drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, we can access online game cards faster than a simple hard drive, and we also get faster game / program start / stop operations, processing and start / stop.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard disk while being more energy efficient, more shock-resistant and quieter.
On the other hand, a 512GB SSD offers a capacity similar to the HDD standard. However, if you need more space, you can use external storage. Preferring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device is an interesting option for fast transfers.
Finally, when it’s pushed hard (like games and treatments), the multi-media gaming laptop geared towards creators is expected to heat up and be heard. Its large shape is certainly not the most portable but it offers the advantage of being particularly convenient for primarily stable use (eg at home).
To contain temperatures if necessary, a well-ventilated brace (Remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
